EXHIBITION SHOWCASES ISHIDA’S ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

The Ishida Europe stand at this year’s PPMA Show will showcase the latest developments across the company’s extensive product portfolio, all of which help to deliver excellent accuracy, improved efficiencies and maximum throughput for a wide variety of applications.

 Highlights include two new checkweighers, an entry-level X-ray system, Ishida’s innovative Strip Pack Applicator for enhanced in-store presentation, and multihead weighers capable of handling root vegetables and citrus fruits, fresh, sticky products and frozen foods.

The DACS-G is the latest addition to Ishida’s checkweigher range.  The new model is capable of exceptional speeds while maintaining high accuracy, and, at the touch of a button, can switch between two weighing ranges, allowing food manufacturers to handle more products on one machine.  A unique Dislocating Force Limiter automatically disconnects the weigh sensor from the weigh conveyor should sudden excessive force be applied (for example during clean down), protecting the DACS-G against rough handling.

Also on show will be the DACS Economy checkweigher, which is waterproof to IP65 specification for fast and easy cleaning. This entry-level model incorporates Ishida’s unique Anti Floor Vibration (AFV) system, Ishida-made high-sensitivity loadcells and high-speed Digital Signal Processing (DSP) for high weighing  accuracy and -consistency at high speeds, as well as a key pad display for simple operation.

 All models in the DACS range can be easily integrated with the Ishida Data Capture System (IDCS), a user-friendly, secure software programme that can record the data of every pack weighed from up to 100 checkweighers into a single secure database. The IDCS offers an extensive range of reporting options to enable production managers to employ state-of-the-art monitoring for legislative compliance while also identifying cost saving opportunities, minimising product giveaway and improving production efficiencies.

 In addition, Ishida will be demonstrating an entry-level version of its market-leading X-ray inspection system, which offers food manufacturers an affordable solution for maximum quality control in their packing operations.

 The IX-EA-2161 has been designed to inspect thermoform and top seal trays and other smaller size packed and unpacked product , and offers higher detection levels than metal detectors, checking products for a much wider range of foreign bodies.  It can operate at belt speeds of up to 60 metres per minute. 

The Portable Strip Pack Applicator (P-SPA) is a new portable version of Ishida’s pioneering Strip Pack Applicator, which produces ready-to display hanging strips of pillow packs. This latest innovation is a compact, space saving and value for money model, which makes it ideal for contract packing and retail operations as well as snack, confectionery and other food manufacturers. 

Multihead weigher developments include a model specifically developed to handle whole root vegetables and citrus fruit, which combines gentle product handling with speeds of up to 60 packs per minute.

Other multihead models on show include the CCW-R-214 and FFW (Fresh Food Weigher). The CCW-R-214 is a standard frozen food weigher, designed for the fast and accurate weighing of small to medium frozen food products, while the linear design of the CCW-M-112 FFW was created to handle fresh sticky products such as diced and minced meat, poultry, fish and fruit.
